Closing Gaps in the WC Memberships Integration

We’ve just released Sensei with WooCommerce Paid Courses, which focuses on closing some gaps in the WooCommerce Memberships integration.

(As a reminder, Sensei with WooCommerce Paid Courses is a bundle of Sensei LMS and WooCommerce Paid Courses.)

What’s New in WooCommerce Paid Courses

We have to admit that Sensei LMS’s integration with WooCommerce Memberships has not gotten the attention it deserves. The integration is somewhat shallow, and there are gaps in functionality that need to be addressed.

We’re going to change that, starting today.

We’ve begun by focusing on achieving feature parity between course memberships and products attached directly to a course. In particular, courses that are part of a membership are now included in:

  • The purchase confirmation notice that a user sees after purchasing a course.
  • The order confirmation email that is sent to a user after purchasing a course.
  • The Course Component widget.
  • The Paid and Free filters on the course archive page.

You can learn more about the other membership improvements we’ve made in this release by reading the beta release post or visiting the change log.

The next release of WooCommerce Paid Courses will focus on deepening the integration with WooCommerce Memberships, enabling you to take better advantage of existing memberships functionality.

Would you like to be a beta tester for WooCommerce Paid Courses and get the new release ahead of everyone else? If you’re interested, and you have a valid license, please fill out the beta tester signup form using the same email address you used to purchase your license.

What’s New in Sensei LMS

Here are the highlights of the Sensei LMS 2.2.1 release:

  • You can now add HTML to question titles.
  • Loading the Courses page is faster.
  • We’ve fixed an issue that could cause formatting issues on some themes. If your existing theme didn’t look quite right on Sensei LMS pages, we’d encourage you to give it another try with Sensei LMS 2.2.1.

You can learn what else is included in this release by reading the beta release post or visiting the change log.
